clinton playbook. in 1994 when republicans won the congress back in an historic victory, clinton had a choice. he was also going down the liberal path, and thanks to dick morris's advice, he chose to be above and beyond his party and cut deals with the republicans and recognize where the country stood, as mike was saying, at that time. >> but then, if he goes back to the table, surely democrats can rightly say you were meant to be a different kind of candidate. >> he is different. that will make it more difficult. bill clinton was basically a moderate southern governor, despite how he ran and how the government in his first couple of years. he was basically at the center of the economy -- basically at the center of the country and the economy. barack obama is a legislator by trade, and on the left wing of his party. it will be hard for him to move to the center.
